    My new pump has arrived and it’s come with some Mio infusion sets, which look intriguing as I usually use the QuickSets. Does anyone have experience of both? And what might the pros and cons of either be?

    I’m now an expert (of a week) 😉 as far as I can tell the difference is the inserter ..

    I can see the mio being good when you get used to it but for a newbie it was a but of a FAFF setting it all up.

    I got the tubing caught in the inserter cog on Saturday – managed to pull it all out w/o any problem & unjam it so it’s quite robust.

    There’s also some discussion of this over on our Facebook page:

    s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_GB/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.3"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));

    Does anyone have experience regarding the difference between the Mio and QuickSet infusion sets? Discuss over on the forums. Or here. Whichever you prefer.

    I tried Mios a while back when I was having some problems with Quicksets kinking internally after insertion.

    I know lots of people love em, but I always found the self-serter a bit ‘cracker toy’ and flimsy. I broke several without being able to get them inserted properly.

    I had the same issue as Mike – the inserted was really flimsy. And as I was happy with Quicksets and only tried them because id been given one I didn’t bother persisting. I suspect with practice they are perfectly fine.
